CSCW 2010: The 2010 ACM Conference on Computer Supported Cooperative Work • February 6–10, 2010 • Savannah, Georgia, USA


Doctoral Colloquium


Update: Due to the unexpectedly large number of submissions, we are slightly delayed in making decisions regarding the Doctoral Colloquium. Notifications will be sent out November 24, 2009. Thank you for your patience!

The Doctoral Colloquium is a forum in which Ph.D. students can meet and discuss their work with each other and a panel of experienced CSCW researchers and practitioners. The colloquium itself will begin with dinner Saturday night February 6, 2010 and continue all day Sunday February 7.

We welcome applicants from a broad range of disciplines and approaches that inform CSCW, including anthropology, sociology, computer science, cognitive science, organizational studies, and related fields. We are particularly interested in applications from institutions and groups that have not traditionally been well-represented at past CSCW conferences.

Applicants should be Ph.D. students with an already well-established direction of research relevant to CSCW, and who would benefit from attendance at the Doctoral Colloquium; preference will be given to students within 2 years of graduation.

The Colloquium committee will select approximately 15 participants who will be expected to give short, informal presentations of their work during the Colloquium, to be followed by extensive group discussion. Participants will also present their research in an interactive poster session during the main technical program of the conference.

Applicants should submit the following items (by email to with the subject line “CSCW2010 Colloquium Submission.”):


Submissions should be made by email to with the subject line “CSCW2010 Colloquium Submission.” All questions can also be directed to this address.

All submissions must be received by the chairs by 5:00pm (17:00) Pacific Time on October 18, 2009. Submissions received after this date will not be considered. All submissions will be acknowledged by email.


We will support doctoral colloquium student hotel costs and conference registration. We will also be able to reimburse a portion of airfare for domestic (US) participants; non-US participants will have to cover their own airfare however.
